ATLANTA — To answer the question of who is running for mayor in Atlanta in 2017, it might be easier to answer who is not running for mayor.
City Councilwoman Mary Norwood is the latest to throw her hat into the ring. Others running for the post are:
- Former Atlanta City Council President Cathy Woolard
- Former city Chief Operating Officer Peter Aman
- Al Bartell
- Atlanta City Councilman Kwanza Hall
- Debra Hampton
- State Rep. Margaret Kaiser, D-Atlanta
- Atlanta City Council President Ceasar Mitchell
- Kimberley Johnson Obasuyi
- Former Atlanta City Councilman and current Fulton County Commissioner Robb Pitts
- Former Atlanta Workforce Development Agency Director Michael Sterling
- Tommy Youngblood Jr.
Norwood was nearly elected mayor in 2009 but fell about 700 votes short to current Mayor Kasim Reed.
